My research is focussed on the role of metals, especially iron, on brain ageing and neurodegenerative diseases, as well as interactions with inflammation and/or peripheral metabolic dysfunction, such as in obesity and non-alcoholic fatty liver disease. My Phenomics Lab develop and employ magnetic resonance imaging and spectroscopy (MRI, MRS) and nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR)-based metabolomics, and metallomics/elementomics mapping and spectroscopy; alongside other biological/molecular techniques and behaviour to characterise phenomes of human disease and experimental models. I am an editor and contributing author of the Biological Section of ‘Modern Magnetic Resonance’ (2016; 2nd edition, Springer); and contributing author in ‘Essential Bioimaging methods’ (2009, Academic Press). I am also Departmental Admissions Tutor, Leader of the module on Neurodegenerative Disorders & Mechanisms in BSc Psychology and was module leader for ‘Practical Neuroimaging’ in the Departmental MSc.
